Can anyone recommend a gynaecologist who speaks good English, preferably a woman, in Berlin? Also, is it true that you have to have smear tests yearly not every three years?
My gynaecologist is Dr Helene Taheri - she is in Neukoelln on Sonnenallee near where I used to live. She is lovely and does speak English. Smear tests are annual over here but she is very kind, quick and will get the result to you within a few days!
Smear tests are annually in Germany but you tend to get the results much faster, usually within a couple of days instead of the usual long wait in England. My gynaecologist basically says that if I don't hear from her within 3-4 days after it's been sent to the lab then everything is ok! You also get a smear test here automatically if you are pregnant (so a friend of mine tells me!).
